PRODUCT INFORMATION GUIDE:
The following information provides a totally transparent overview of all of my products and their ingredients to enable you to make an informed selection in choosing whichever style of natural fragrance best suits you.
As a fully qualified aromatherapist, I am aware that skin sensitivities occur infrequently, and typically by people who are already aware of their potential for reaction to perfume ingredients. My best advice is to approach the perfume counter with common sense, and the understanding that perfume composed from essential oils is dynamic and potent. It is also worth noting (and even asking why?) natural perfume ingredients (such as jasmine, rose, lavender, citrus etc) are only restricted in commercial perfumery, and not in aromatherapy.
To safeguard against any potential irritation occurring, it is recommended that you skin test all products before using more liberally. Apply a small amount, about a drop or less, to the skin on your inner arm and observe over a period of hours. Small quantity testers of all products are available for your convenience. In the unlikely event of irritation, discontinue use.
All Teone Reinthal Natural Perfume products are exclusively intended for external use only. Please keep all essential oils, perfumes, perfume oils, unguents, water perfumes and additional products out of reach of children. If you are pregnant or nursing a baby, have heart disease, epilepsy, high blood pressure, diabetes, or have any medical condition that may be affected by essential oils or natural botanical fragrances, please seek the advice of a health professional before using.
Disclaimer: The safe and proper use of Teone Reinthal Natural Perfume products is the sole responsibility of the user.
The sheer pleasure of wearing natural perfume is totally unlike commercial perfumery; be prepared for a very different and alluring scent experience. The following information helps to explain why….
*Natural perfume has a very high percentage of rare and precious botanical ingredients; packaging and marketing are minimal because I am wholeheartedly invested in the contents, not the cover.
*Natural perfume stands out from a crowd because it is sourced from living plants, and manufactured by the elemental science of earth, sun, air and water.
*Natural perfume is synergistic, and so beautifully compatible with human health, it sings to the unconscious mind I celebrate life by nature.
* Each unique fragrance tells a compelling story; redolent of a myriad of beautiful raw ingredients.
* Natural perfume breathes with your body; it synergises with your bio-chemistry in a slow-release of volatile plant essences that ‘bloom’ over a period of time. It’s the subtle complexities in botanical ingredients that really speak to me.
* Dynamic natural essences and raw fragrance materials are seasonally harvested; each aromatic ingredient contributing unique personality and individual life force. This is the most precious feature of natural perfumes:- the fact that the smells are created from living plants.
* Teone Reinthal Natural Perfume is produced in strictly limited quantities; especially designed for connoisseurs of fine fragrance. I believe that a true signature fragrance is simply the ‘right’ perfume composition for you; a compatible collaboration of scents that signify your quintessence in an alluring experience of pleasure for you… and for others. As they say ‘you wear the perfume, don’t let it wear you’. Be true to yourself, enter the exquisite life force of natural perfume, wherein you are the key ingredient.
Oil Parfums contain 50% pure and natural fragrance ingredients blended in a super-emollient mixture of Jojoba, Moringa seed oil, organic, extra virgin hemp seed oil and fractionated coconut oil. These carrier oils may be used singularly or in combinations. The botanical oil medium is extraordinarily beautiful for skin and produces a comfortable workplace radiance with elegant sillage.
Unguents are solid perfumes in 15gm and 30gm pots of deeply moisturising pure parfum (oil) blended in organic beeswax at a very high (50%) ratio of oil parfum fragrance to beeswax. The best way to apply unguent is to use the back of your thumb to scoop out a mound of the solid perfume, warm it between the palms of your hands and massage it fully into your hands, wrists and forearms. Unguent medium is robustly firm and takes a minute or 2 after massaging to completely soak into your skin, leaving your hands and forearms feeling silky and refreshed. The fragrance generally lasts as long as a perfumed body lotion, and is fantastic for your skin, particularly in dry weather. Keep a pot in your pocket/handbag/briefcase for reapplying as desired. The radiance of unguents does not perform in the same way as Eau de Parfums, it is a more personal experience and suitable for being in environments where heavy fragrance use causes problems (particularly synthetic and over-sprayed fragrances). Having said that most people will exclaim – ‘what’s that beautiful smell… is that you? – what is that and where can I buy it?’ etc etc
Eau de Parfums & Colognes: are blended in an alcohol base (95PG) which is 99.75% perfume grade sugar cane ethanol that also contains 0.25% tertiary butyl alcohol added as a bitterant or denaturant. This modification prevents the illegal sales of bootleg alcohol. 95PG is widely used and classified as safe for use in personal care products such as perfume, after shave, shampoo, conditioner, toners and body washes, however the 0.25% added denaturant means that these alcohol-based fragrances are not claimed as chemical-free. (50ml of eau de parfum contains 35% pure essential oils, resins and absolutes diluted in 65% ethanol containing 1 drop of denaturant).
The Aromatherapy Counter contains a number of beautiful handmade products for the body and environment. Ingredients for these products are listed on each item’s page.
Custom or bespoke perfumery is a wonderful way to spoil the daylights outta someone you really like (or maybe even just when a little self pampering is required?).
Gift certificates are available and you – or the receiver of your gift – can totally collaborate in the process of designing a signature fragrance based on personal preferences and personality. This is the ultimate signature scent – no one else will ever have the same perfume.
